While visiting display homes of new houses recently, I was intrigued by two interesting offerings by a builder.
One was called an 'Integrated Granny Flat', which is a two bedroom-livingroom-bath-kitchen set up under one roof, along with the main house. Both the main house and the 'separate quarter' are connected by a door. The flat also has its separate entry door from outside.
The other one is a traditional attached granny flat, with its separate entry door. Between the main house and the granny flat there's no connecting passage.
What intrigued me is that I was led to believe that the first one is Not considered a proper granny flat as such and -- this is the interesting bit -- it leaves the option open to have a detached granny flat in the backyard (assuming one passes the space requirements).
Does this sound right, or have I misunderstood the sales person (I did ask twice to clarify)?
Appreciate your thoughts.
